How comfortable are you with your level of intellectualism?

I am comfortable with my level of intellectualism, but I strive to learn something new every day.

Pretty well, but I wish it was higher.

I've resigned myself to reality. There is a great deal in this world that I do not know and I am not likely to learn before I die.

Not as comfortable as I'd like.

I know I'm academically intelligent, but I wish I had more common sense!

Gahanna, OH USA

I'm completely comfortable with my level of intellectualism. And with increasing maturity, I've learned that there are many things to value in people who do not share my intellectual level.

There's always room for improvement.

Pretty much. There are times where I am conscious that I am either talking at a level that makes me seem like a smarty-pants and other times when I feel like I sound like an idiot. Seems par for the course.

It has gotten me this far, so I'm not complaining.

i used to be comfortable with my intellectualism when i was younger i guess because i was in that stage of thinking i knew everything. at that time i knew i didnt know everything but i definitely thought i knew alot and i actually had an obsession with learning as much as could so i could eventually know almost everything. now i am less comfortable because i slacked off. i still know alot for my time but the drive to know more has left so the people around me are catching up. i liked my level because i was able to help people. i was like a walking library. it was nice because i felt like i was of use.

thats almost gone now. they only way it will come back is when i am a teacher but i keep slacking off so much i think that might never happen. family life gets in the way so much and i get bogged down with it and i lost my motivation. i have a feeling once i get away from family then my drive will come back and i will once again be comfortable with my knowledge.
